    6 Essential Steps to Protect Your Computer On the Internet For Free - Spybot-S


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Spybot-S&D is a free anti-spyware software to detect any spyware installed on your PC.

    Spyware is any software that is installed on your PC and tracks your online behavior without your knowledge or consent. Spyware generally can

    Track what web pages you are visiting and send these information to advertising companies. This kind of spyware is commonly called adware.
    Track and record your computer activities such as what keys you hit. This is generally called Trojans.
    Change your web browser's home page.
    And more...
    After installed Spybot, I immediately scanned my friend's computer and found 166 problems. The first run killed nearly all of them except some memory residents that had to be killed after a reboot.

    Step #3: Download and install Kerio Personal Firewall (KPF).

    Kerio Personal Firewall limited free edition is for home users. After installation, KPF works as the full edition for 30 days, after which it becomes the limited free edition.

    You may also try the free ZoneAlarm firewall. Be aware that ZoneAlarm free edition uses a lot of computer memory.

    The following is the free ZoneAlarm firewall download link. You hardly can find this download link on ZoneAlarm site because they want you to buy the Pro version which is a much better choice.

    Step #4: Download AVG anti-virus software
